Pipedreams, which began production in 1982, remains the only nationally-distributed weekly radio program exploring the art of the pipe organ.  Host and senior executive producer Michael Barone has been recognized nationally for his outstanding contributions to the world of organ music.  Michael brought Pipedreams to Rochester in 2009 and again in 2016, recording Pipedreams Live programs featuring students and faculty from the Eastman School of Music in one of the most "remarkably popular and successful weekend organ festivals" ever.
